The Historic Prints Process
Our team is dedicated to provide affordable and quality historic reproductions. We have invested in the finest equipment, software, and manpower to correct tears, fold lines, and other blemished areas. All our reproductions are digitally ehanced before being reproduced through Giclée printing.
What is Giclée?
Giclée (pronounced "Zhee-Clay") is a word derived from the French verb "gicler" which means "to squirt or spray".
Giclée prints are typically created on large format printers that use pigment-based inks as opposed to dye-based inks used in standard inkjet prints. Pigment based inks have longer lifespan and can last anywhere from 100 to 200 years without significant fading.
Giclée printing provides better color accuracy than almost any other means of reproduction. Usual prints use 8 to 12 different color ink cartridge. The more inks used, the more sophisticated the color gamut would be on the final output. This is why Giclée is the go to process of modern arts today. It's coveted by collectors for its high fidelity and quality, and desired by artists alike because it doesn't have to be produced in huge quantities, thus cutting the time & cost needed for the production. The process is digital and individually produced so the print can be created on demand. The colors are brighter and can last longer and the details are crisper because of their high-resolution nature.
Printer, ink, and media: these are three integral components necessary when it comes to Giclée printing. With Historic Prints, you can rest assured that only the best materials are used to produce quality Giclée prints. Because you deserve the best!
